abstract

  • Dietary ARG supplementation during UUO relief did not improve ERPF or GFR. However, renal damage, including fibrosis, apoptosis, and macrophage infiltration was significantly improved by ARG treatment. This suggests that increasing NO availability could be beneficial in the setting of UUO relief.
